projects and pubs

Cinephilia in the Age of Digital Reproduction, Vol. 2 is now available for pre-order through Columbia UP's site, which means the much-hyped (by me) Be Kind Rewind essay will finally see the light of day. Its not perfect, but I think its the best thing I have, and probably will ever have, written on cinephilia--a subject I look forward to leaving behind. Its slated for April, but I'll believe that when I see it. I thought my millions of loyal readers would like to know.

Also, the copy-edited pages--all 538--awaiting my comments for the Disney book with UT Press, now titled Disney's Most Notorious Film / Race, Convergence and Hidden Histories of Song of the South, have been sitting untouched on my office bookshelf for the last month or two. I hope to get to it as soon as this (endless) semester comes to a resolution. I'm loving my classes, but I miss working on my writing (I've done a lot more thinking than writing on the digital cinema project in the last few months).

On that note, I really, really hope to get good news on my Paul Thomas Anderson manuscript any day now . . . .
